Hawk Talk – St. Lawrence River Elite Event

Category : HAWK TALK

I fished the St. Lawrence River my first season on the Elite Series and had a great tournament targeting smallmouth with a dropshot rig, so I didn’t see any reason to change my game plan for this event, especially since we’d be fishing close to the same time of year. While the River can produce nice largemouth, I knew it...

Hawk Talk – Kentucky Lake BASSFest

Category : HAWK TALK

I spent the month leading up to the Kentucky Lake tournament fishing and guiding on Lake Guntersville (also a part of the TVA chain of lakes) and since both lakes fish similar during the summertime I had a lot of confidence going into the event. I knew I’d dedicate the three practice days idling and graphing up and down KY Lake...

Hawk Talk – Lake Havasu Elite Series Event

Category : HAWK TALK

Due to B.A.S.S. shortening our normal three-day practice period down to two days on Havasu I decided to spend my time fishing the lake and completely ignore the river. I felt there was plenty of fish scattered along the Windsor Basin (close to the launch) to win the tournament. The first practice morning I bounced from point to poi...

InsideLine – Hawk Talk – Sabine River Elite Series

Category : HAWK TALK

Two years ago I fished the Sabine River for the first time and made the mistake of trying to cover too much water in practice instead of picking an area and learning it well.  This time I committed the three day practice period to Taylor’s Bayou, fishing both Taylor’s and Hildebrandt, giving myself an opportunity to find as many...

InsideLine – FINESSE TO IMPRESS – Subtle Jig Presentations Tempt Picky Bass

Category : HAWK TALK

By David A. Brown March 12, 2015 Big and bold – sometimes that strategy works well for bass jigs. Other times, like the late winter to early spring period, less is more. Bassmaster Elite Series pro Kevin Hawk knows this and he’s keen on showing the fish smaller packages when conditions and seasonal patterns warrant. “This time ...

InsideLine – Hawk Talk – Toho Southern Open

Category : HAWK TALK

After an enjoyable “off-season” guiding and spending time with family and friends over the holidays, I was anxiously anticipating the first event of the 2015 season. I’d never fished Lake Toho before, so after digging through prior tournament results I felt either fishing off-shore on Toho or flipping and pitching veget...

InsideLine – Hawk Talk – My Year in Review

Category : HAWK TALK

With my second season on the Elite Series behind me, I’ve had some time to reflect on this past year’s performance and I’m not pleased. Not the least bit.  I had one top 12, three top 50’s, and a handful of bombs. That’s unacceptable.  In order for me to be competitive and successful on the Elite Series I need to qualify ...

InsideLine – Hawk Talk – Delaware River Elite

Category : HAWK TALK

  When B.A.S.S. released the 2014 Elite Series schedule I think a lot of people were surprised to see the Delaware River on the list.  I know I was.  I couldn’t recall a major tournament held on the River dividing New Jersey and Pennsylvania.  The first thing I did was check the off-limits map to see if we could run to the...

InsideLine – Hawk Talk – BASSfest on Lake Chickamauga

Category : HAWK TALK

The inaugural BASSfest on Lake Chickamauga had a different format than a regular season Elite Series event.  In addition to the regular Elite Series field, the top 20 anglers from each of the B.A.S.S. Open Divisions had the opportunity to enter the event.  There were no AOY points involved, so it allowed the anglers to fish aggres...
